M&G’s Climate Solutions fund is part of our range of Planet+ funds. It’s designed to deliver both financial returns for investors and a positive impact for the planet. We invest in companies which we believe can deliver solutions to the challenges of climate change.
Climate solutions exist across a broad range of sectors. It’s a common myth that we must just focus on renewable energy to cut CO2 emissions. Whilst this is a big part of the solution there are so many other sectors which can have a positive impact.
Investing in the solutions to climate challenges
Fund manager, Randeep Somel gives an overview of the fund and answers five key questions.
Randeep discusses milestones from the past year of managing the fund and a taste of what might be to come in the future.
The value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
The fund can be exposed to different currencies. Movements in currency exchange rates may adversely affect the value of your investment.
The fund holds a small number of investments, and therefore a fall in the value of a single investment may have a greater impact than if it held a larger number of investments.
The fund invests mainly in company shares and is therefore likely to experience larger price fluctuations than funds that invest in bonds and/or cash.
